Just Magnolia's Summer!

That is right it is summer... well maybe not by the date of the calendar, I think there is still a week until it is technically summer but it is HOT and school is out - so it is SUMMER! Just Magnolia's is celebrating summer today - that is the theme - make a summer card with any Magnolia image.

Ok, I made my card at my Crop last weekend... it really didn't seem that bright at 10 pm after an entire day of coke and chocolate... but now... Warning: Please put on your shades - ;0)

Well since there is a Summer theme, I figured Tilda in her swim trunks and float tube was the best choice - Around here in Texas, floating the rivers in inner tubes is the thing to do when it starts to heat up... not me - give me an air conditioned room with a view and I am much much happier. But Tilda looks like she is ready to have some fun. All colored up with my Copics and stickled wings.
My card started with a white card stock base, the pattern paper dots is from I think American Crafts - the orange is the back side of it... love that! For my waves I used a piece of Heidi Grace shimmer paper, then EK success border punch. I inked the edge to make the waves pop. I created a "sun" with a circle of yellow shimmer paper - inked with orange ink. Seemed kind of boring so I found a chipboard yellow flower in my stash and centered it on my sun.
I also found a sun charm in my stash, so I hung it from the center of the flower with a jewelry spacer and chain. Love the charm it is two sided... one with the happy sun face -
And the other with the words "Made with a Smile" love that!
My "SUMMER SPLASH" is cut with my Making Memories Slice - For a finishing touch I doodled the edges with a white gel pen.
I warned you that is was bright - Oh well summer is bright and sunny right? Now for some prettier summer cards make sure to visit the JUST MAGNOLIAS blog and see the other DT's work... much more calm and relaxing! LOL And why not join in? A great prize again this week!!
Long list for me today - I have to go to the post office and the grocery store - I didn't make it there yesterday on MIL shopping day - her list was long and I just got to tired of shopping before we made it there. So out I go again today :0) Hope you have a wonderful Friday - what do you have planned for the weekend? Any thing special?
HUGS and-
